Eos Embedded Perception Software Sees All

Sit down, take a deep breath, and try to relax. In a few moments, I’m going to show you a video of people (well, dummies that look like people) walking in front of vehicles equipped with pedestrian detection and automatic emergency braking systems. The results will make the hairs stand up on the back of your neck. I’m still shaking my head in disbelief at what I … Read More → "Eos Embedded Perception Software Sees All"

The Future of Connected Cars: Automotive Cybersecurity and Software Fluency with C2A Security

We are navigating through the twists and turns of automotive security in this week’s Fish Fry podcast. Michael Dick (CEO – C2A Security) joins us for an in-depth discussion about the role software fluency plays in the realm of automotive security, the ongoing issues surrounding cybersecurity lifecycle management, and why Mike believes that without visibility we cannot have security.

Handling Radiation in SRAM-Based FPGAs (Part 1)

Radiation in its various forms has long been the bane of the designers of electronic systems. Unfortunately, the effects of radiation become more insidious and pervasive as integrated circuit fabrication processes employ smaller and smaller structures. The problem is most acute in the case of FPGAs, which also have their configuration cells to contend with. Happily, a new fabrication process can dispel radiation-induced FPGA woes.
